    Hello, My e46 battery + wire is getting so hot that you can’t even hold it for more than 2-3 seconds. The car runs with a new battery good for 1 day. I drove it for 8 hours straight and the next day it started having issues. The cable got hot in the matter of seconds and the car threw an EML...

    Hi All, I have just collected my car from the garage. It was having a new driveshaft fitted, and a replacement CCV kit to combat a suspected vacuum leak. The Check Engine light was on, throwing P0171 and P0174 codes; vacuum leak. With the CCV kit fitted, I drove away from the garage with the...

    Ill do my best to explain everything in depth as possible. The issue first happened when it was winter and decently cold outside. Lets say I drive at a steady 70 mph and let off the gas completely, as I decelerate past 60mph the EML light would turn on and I would be limited to 40 - 45 mph...

    Hi everyone In short Ver randomly and not frequently I get during driving a eml light and rumbling engine with misfires. It fixes itself magically after sitting still for at most a night. (Today however I also got this during cold startup) Here is a video IMG_9810.MOV Full story I have a e46...

    I recently decided to try to reflash the DME (MS43) on my 325i. Everything had gone smoothly up until it was time to write the new 512kb file in JMGarageFlasher. Instead of opening the one from MS4X, I accidentally hit write again. I figured it was just rewriting the copy of the original, and I...

    I’ve been experiencing parasitic draw on my 330 for months now, and I’ve come to the reasonable conclusion that my problem is the final stage blower resistor (a common culprit). I also have an EML dash light in yellow, have had it for months. Could replacing the resistor fix this EML issue, or...

    Hey everyone, so as the title states, up until just yesterday, car was running fine, no issues. Yesterday I ended up getting an EML light which would also go into limp mode. This seems to have been fixed by removing the idle control valve and cleaning it out, code was P1500. After this, the EML...

    I am new to the forum but amazed that .. for an E46 which has been around a VERY long time, little seems to be actually, definitively known about limp mode. Lots of guessing .. little solid knowledge. Even how it is defined is hazy. Some say it just limits your speed while others show video of...

    Hello forum members I have BMW E46 220D 2004 model and when I fast accelerate I loose Turbo and EML light goes on. If I instantly switch off and on the engine while driving, EML light goes off and turbo recovers. If I slow accelerate there is no problem. Problem is only with fast acceleration...

    I had a problem for the past week where the EML and Traction Control would suddenly turn on and throw the car into Limp Mode. The only help I could find in Forums was to check the Wheel Sensor or to check the ECU. The codes I was getting were P1122 and P1121 which are related to the Pedal...

    I have a 2001 330ci that I've recently been having issues with. I replaced the fuel filter about a month ago, since I was getting engine lights about low intake. That fixed the issue of that. But, im not sure what the heck is going on. I've been researching for a bit but everyone has 30...

    I've been having a rather occasional problem (only happened twice so far) with my M3. The DSC, Oil, EML, and Battery lights come on and limp mode ensues. It then starts to have trouble maintaining idle. This last time, the engine died. If I turn the car off and back on, it runs fine. I didn't...

    About an hour ago my m3 went into limp mode. I was driving on a wet street and gave car some some extra gas to get through a light. The dsc came on and cut power. A second later, the eml came on and the car went into limp mode. I pulled over and restarted the car. No issues after and I didn't...

    My 2000 323i wagon blew a coil 2 days ago and I replaced it same-day with a BREMI coil. Worked like a charm for all of 16 hours. Yesterday afternoon, out of nowhere, my car begins to shudder, lose almost all power, and throws SES, EML, and DSC. I pulled over, turned it off, waited 30 seconds...

    So I've been having the christmas tree light up (the one where the ornaments are: DSC, ABS, BRAKE, EML) since I bought the car, but it's never been often enough for me to do anything about it. The lights would come on, sometimes with a P0221 error code, I would restart the car and keep driving...

    Hi guys, I like to keep my car as close to new as possible. I changed all the filter and oil recently and still have about 12 K KM until the next service. I found a very nice new MAF from Pierburg, only the sensor without the housing at a good price and installed it. My bad, I forgot to...
